Biological Sciences 101 Dr. Mark Sanders Solving Genetics Problems One of the difficult transitions from lower division to upper division biological science classes is the requirement that you learn to solve problems that involve the assessment and interpretation of data. Whereas the problems you worked in lower division classes frequently relied on memorizing information, memorization is of little utility in solving genetics problems. Learning and remembering vocabulary is certainly important, but there are almost no genetics problems for which memorization is a successful problem-solving strategy. So how do you solve genetics problems? The answer is that it takes commitment and practice to learn the information you need and to develop the intellectual skills required to solve problems. Begin by looking over the “Top Ten” list of strategies for success in BIS 101 (available for download on the course SmartSite). Next, commit yourself to studying genetic every day.
